TV RIGHTS CLEARANCE QUERY (re-do)
I am working on a new documentary tv series about the 1950's and 1960's for the Discovery Network and trying to figure out the rights situation for radio broadcasts under the WW11 Archive:http://archive.org/details/1960-1969RadioNews
I am not interested in the music -just the news portions so we can
provide an authentic background sound in various scenes.
Specifically, I want to inquire about WKNR Detroit – Keener 13 (now Fresh 100 owned by Clear Channel).
The WKNR links are on the right sight side of the screen on RadioNews and I am interested in #37 -#40; #44; #45; #52; #70; #82.
WKNR has been dark for years and the station is now Fresh 100 and owned by Clear Channel. The new station has no jurisdiction over the closed WKNR. So I believe the news portion might be public domain.
Would anybody be able to help me clarify this?
Thanks for your time and consideration!
